DA hard at work

Is she related to Katherine ?
-------------------------------------------
SAN FRANCISCO (Map, News) - Six parents of chronically truant San Francisco schoolchildren — each of whom missed more than 50 days of class — were arraigned Tuesday before a superior court judge on infractions that charged the guardians with failing to make sure their kids receive an education.

The infractions, pursued by District Attorney Kamala Harris, carry a $100 fine. If the truancy continues, the next step would be misdemeanor charges of neglecting a child’s education, charges that could land a parent in county jail for up to a year with a fine up to $2,500, Harris said Tuesday.

The parents — Connie Wilson, Jamelia Kellom, Shanae Seastrunk, Kenneth Reed, Chanell Brown and Joshua Pomar — were the first to be prosecuted under stricter enforcement guidelines announced by Harris at the beginning of the school year.

Why shouldn't parents be held responsible for ensuring their spawn's education?

Hauling these parents to court, imposing an additional $100 fine on top
of their likely strained finances make ZERO sense. What next ? Putting the
parents in jail when the intention is to keep people out of jail makes ZERO
sense.

If my mom's name was "Shanae Seastrunk" I would skip school and the town and start a new life somewhere far far away

Why should their presumed financial distress excuse them from participating in ensuring the best possible education for their spawn?
